Hey i switched from eircom to vodafone broadband, was very happy until i noticed my ps3 will NOT connect to the wireless, i get an error saying "the attempt to obtain the IP address timed out" can you please help me fix this, i know for a fact i got the WPA-PSK + WPA2 - PSK ( WPA KEY) right and i even turned it off and still wont co...nnect, i can only connect with a lan wire, but i need it wireless, any help please ?
i changed to WEP, i tried 64 - bit and 128 - bit , when i did Password (Ascii) no use, but when i changed the Password (Hexa) and typed it in i got a good result, every thing works except UPnP ( not available) and my nat type is type 2, still cant connect though, it gave me connection speed results to, so i must be close,
i dont know what im doing btw, and this is the message i wrote on vodafons facebook wall, im just not in the mood to retype it for here,

i have tried it about 17 times, i have used the ps3 official wireless keyboard as well as entering it normal, i know for a fact i typed it right, and its all in CAPS so i dont need to worry about lower and higher case

even if i use WEP i still cant connect, i get an error when trying to sign in, and them homeplugs seem expensive, even on eBay !, you might be wondering, why i want wireless, ps3 is kinda far from the router, but we have a laptop, (wireless card is broke ) and 3 computers, 1 is mine, the other two are my brothers, my router has 4 lan slots, i use one, 2 other pcs , and the laptop, no room for another why im stuck with wireless, i could just buy the lan splitter thing and another lan wire
